Welcome to Staithes Group Art Specialists, T.B. & R. Jordan's Gallery

We’re Tom and Rosamund Jordan and we have been dealing in Fine Art for over forty years.

Our special interest has always been the work of Impressionist artists painting in the North of England around a hundred years ago. The Staithes Group, who worked in and around the picturesque fishing village, have always been special favourites. Many of them trained in Paris and/or Antwerp at the height of the Impressionist movement and their work is now in private and public collections world wide.

A more recent interest is the work of mining artists, especially that of the late Durham miner, Tom McGuinness.

We search for the best examples and sell at prices that make it possible for clients to hang museum quality examples on their walls.
